    My score is posted below (90 on the first try)- am kind of mad for not scoring perfect, being a History major and all.... How did you do?




    85/100, missed 3.

    Although I psyched myself out on two of them. New Hampshire was the original, Vermont not; should have been able to work out that people weren't going to name a new territory after an English settlement immediately post-revolution.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Scored 90.

    It was interesting that on my quiz, 2 questions were to make it clear that the excluded item is the right to bear arms. And the question claiming the importance of Susan B Anthony.

    Thus a full 10% of the test was to make sure you know that the right to bear arms is an inferior right and 5% is about women's rights history. I would have to guess a liberal Democrat wrote my test.

    I got 95/100. Missed one I really shouldn't have.

    90. Should have gotten a 95; dumb mistake.

    Got a 100. I tried to upload the picture, but a red exclamation point icon came up. Whatever, at least I know I got it! My American History course from this year came quite in handy haha, even then I still had to guess that it was Vermont who was not a member of the original 13 colonies. I almost selected New Hampshire, but then I realized that since it had the word 'New' it was from England, therefore was probably a colony. Still, that test was more in depth than I expected.

    Makes me wonder how well those outside of DP answered these questions. I would have expected everyone here to do good since alot of our discussions around here involve some sort of history.

    I missed the same one.

    Did the same thing when I was taking a final exam on a course in college on the Constitution. This was like over forty years ago.
    The professor told us which books we had to buy. Ends up one of the books, the professor was the author of the book. When you got to the Fourteeth Amendment in the book the page was blank except for one sentence. "The Fourteenth Amendment is unconstitutional."

    So when I took my final exam and one question was "How many Amendments are there in the Constitution" ?
    At the time there were only 26 Amendment counting the 14th Amendment. Yep, I wrote down twenty six. The professor put a red slash through my answer, incorrect. But I still got an A in the course.
